Remember Fire Safety during this Spooktacular Holiday.
Halloween is once again upon us as the air gets cooler and drier. It is also one of the more fun holidays where children and adults can dress up and get lots of candy, but it can also be one of the more dangerous holidays for property and homeowners. The main culprit is candles, which is on the list of the top 10 causes of home fires in the United States. When you mix candles with highly flammable materials used for costumes, and decorations there is a lot of fuel for a disaster. Mix in dryer air and windier weather conditions and you now have a perfect recipe for disaster. The first step in preparing for any disaster is to have a plan developed in case one happens, such as an Emergency Response Plan offered by SERVPRO, and your second step arming yourself with the knowledge of fire prevention to keep your family safe during this holiday.
